Throughout its illustrious history, the New York Yankees have produced some of the most memorable highlights in baseball annals. Babe Ruth’s “called shot” home run, Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak, Derek Jeter’s amazing “Flip Play.” Most Yankees fans have seen newsreel footage of Lou Gehrig’s farewell speech, watched highlights of a young Mickey Mantle, and have heard the story of Billy Martin’s five managerial hirings and firings.
